    I don't see what the big deal is for teenagers getting cell phones at all. Then again, I didn't get my first cell phone until 18 and since it was on my parents plan they set the rules. They were to use as few on peak minutes as possible, don't go over with text messages, answer their calls when possible, don't download anything that costs money (without permission which I never really seeked), the call log was always open to being looked over. The last and I think most important rule for anybody in high school or earlier, I was not allowed to take my cell phone to school unless I was there after hours. One time in Vo-Tech I stayed after school to do a project (they had the space for it) and when my mom brought the materials she also brought my cell phone.

    when i was in my younger teens sex wasnt as important as it is today.. plus porn wasnt ready available(has to steal your dads)

    at the end of the day contracts have and age restriction on them if the parent wants to get there under 18 child one its up to the parent to monitor it

    i actually like the T-mobile commercial where they show teenagers making an oath after getting their phones free from their parents..
    you know what's the problem these days... Responsibility from both the parent and the teenager.
    Parents... don't be afraid of your teenager...show them who's in control
